I love making our home smelling fresh, clean and deliciously inviting. I can't tell you exactly how much I love candles, fragrance mists and oil diffusers - they're just about everywhere in every living space in our house. You get the idea!
Which is why, I was thrilled to receive the new Glade® Expressions™ Collection - Glade's latest addition to its popular and award-winning home fragrances - to review!
Formally introduced by Glade® and Giuliana Rancic during an event on January 19 in New York City, the collection is a whole new way to experience home fragrance, with true-to-life scents and unique designs.
"I love how the fragrances are familiar and comforting but with a modern twist, which not only matches my design taste perfectly, but also helps make my home feel welcoming and guest-ready", said Rancic.
Always at the forefront of fashion and pop culture, Giuliana Rancic lends a seasoned perspective on style and decor and will be sharing her tips and insights on the Glade® Facebook Page throughout the partnership. As someone with her finger on the pulse of everything from fashion, beauty and celebrity trends, Rancic has developed an unwavering eye for design. With the help of the Glade® Expressions™ Collection, she hopes to inspire other women to create an ambiance that is both inviting and a true reflection of personal style.
Featuring two new designs – a fragrance mist and an oil diffuser - the new Glade® Expressions™ Collection offer familiar notes with touches of the exotic that comfort and inspire. Whether you’re planning a house party and you want to impress your guests or you just want a clean and fresh smelling home to come back to after a long day at work, the new Glade® Expressions™ Collection is the way to go!

Glade® Expressions™ Fragrance Mist is available nationwide for $4.49, and refills are available in four fragrance varieties for $3.49 each.
* Glade® Expressions™ Oil Diffuser is the perfect non-electric diffuser for living spaces for up to 30 days, and one little click is all it takes to fill a room with a lightly layered and long lasting fragrance.

The Glade® Expressions™ Collection includes four new on-trend fragrances that combine classic scents with an exotic twist:
o Cotton & Italian Mandarin (Fragrance Mist only) – Watery honeydew and pear mixed with leafy greens combine with white jasmine, lily of the valley, sandalwood and soft powdery heliotropine for an earthy and warm vanilla fragrance.
o Pineapple & Mangosteen – Fresh greens and tropical fruits burst in this enchanting fragrance while an intriguing mix of juicy pineapple and mixed berries combine with passion flower, jasmine, amber, musk and glistening powder for a full-bodied tropical aroma.
o Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice – Sweet pears, crisp apples, mixed berries and juicy citrus fruits come together with a generous sprinkling of cinnamon, clove and ginger coupled with a dash of vanilla and nutmeg to enhance the warmth of the fragrance.
